Herman Hass, of Davenport, was
drowned lo the Mississippi 'almost di
rectly opposite the lower end of the city
in a peculiarly sail manner about 5
o'clock last evening. Ia company with
another Davenporter named Geo. Beck
he had been acting as referee in a sort of
boat race. Tbe two were in a sail boat,
and when some distance out from the
Chisel house of 'the Rock Island plow
works, the boat capsized, and both men
were thrown into the water. Beck clung
to the boat, and screamed to his com
panion to do the same, but the latter
heedless of the warning struck out for
the K-x k I-thind side, hoping to Andres
cue in a raft which lav dose to the Ruck
But he had taken but a few strokes
win n he was apparently seized with the
cramps, and though he struggled franli
cally and xihtitiIciI in keeping a hove the
surface a remarkably lon length of time
under the circumstance, he sank when
within a few feet of the raft and disap
peared under it, and before assistance
from the shore could reach him. Beck
clung to the capsized boat until rescued
and it was a remarkable fact that he bad
but one lei, and he too was cramped
somewhat when found. Several parties
commenced dragging the river at once
for the body of the unfortunate man, but
without success up to the time of going
II ass was a single man twentyvsix
years of aee, a stone cutter by trade and
the support of his ajjed parents.
It is reported that before the boat cap
sized Beck stood up to put on bis coat,
and that just then a gust of wind struck
the craft and overturned it.

The railroads in the west are evidently
in a bad way. Over-competition caused
by over building has steadiiy reduced
rates and, as if natural laws were not
doing the work fast enough, the state
railway commissioners have lately taken
a band In pushing the great western
traasportation companies into bank
ruptcy. Home figures recently published
in this connection are startling. In 1883
the stock of the eight granger systems
amounted to .334.?34.29M; the bonds
to vj.H,uuii,-t.-. in iwx, rive years
later, the stock had increased to $400.-
133,551 and the bonds to $530,779,913
This is an increase of $65,399,253
in stock and $559,775,108 in bonds, or
a total increase of capitalization, unnn
which tbe eight roads must pay interest.
of $325,178.3S1, or something like fifty
per cent. Most of this increase was in
curred for the extension of their lines
and increased mileage should bring in
creased business. Of course it has done
so to a large extent, hut the reduction in
rates has more than kept pace wiih the
gain in traffic, and as a consequence the
net income, instead of an increase, has
shown a loss of about 12.(MHJ.(KHI. The
amount of the fixed charges has in
creased and the funds to meet them have
correspondingly decreased, o that
nftw the surplus with which to
pay dividends is very small on
the more profitable lines and nothing at
all on the others. If unreasonable com
petition and the forced reduction of rates
by state governments continues much
further, the roads will soon be unable to
pay even interest on their bonds. In fact,
the Atchiann. Topeka& Santa Fecompss
nj to. reached that point. Such
facU as the above show tun
ry of those who are attempting to edu
cate the people to regard the railroads in
the light of oppressors. As a mailer of
fact the railroads have been the principal
agencies in the development of the west
and their stockholders jeffi'lKi flr-JU,

Last evening about 8 o'clock a horse
on one of the through cars on the Holmes
lines balked near tbe centre station on
Moline avenue, anil it could not be started
until something broke upon the air like
the bray of an ass. The horse thus re
minded of the animal he was imitating,
started up and went ahead a considerable
distance before being seized with another
stubborn fit. But the noise that im
pelled the steed did not emanate from the
source it would niitiimlly seem to. It
was simply the innocent laugh of the
Kansas representative of the Union who
was up that way for a drive, and the
horse's actions amused him greatly but
it made the horse ashamed just the same.
Supt. Scunitger would do well to engage
the yahoo to stand around and laugh
whenever bis horses act badly, and the
same remedy might have good effect even
on the mules.

Many boys have a habit of killing birds
all but the English sparrow and robs
bing their nest for the mere fun it affords
them. It would be well for them to read
tbe law on that matter as found in sec
tion three of chapter sixty-one of tho re
vised . statutes of Illinois. No person
shall at any time within this state, kill or
attempt to trap, net, ensnare, destroy or
kill any robin, bluebird, swallow, martin,
mosquito-hawk, whippoorwill, cuckoo,
woodpecker, catbird, brownthrasher, red
bird, hangingbird, buzzard, sparrow,
wren, hummingbird, dove, goldfinch,
mockingbird, bluejay, finch, thrush, lark,
cherrybird, yellowbird, oriole or bobo
link, nor rob or destroy the nests of such
birds, or either or any of them. And any
person so offending shall, on conviction,
be fined the sum of $5 for each and every
bird so killed, and for each and every
nest robbed or destroyed.

Cable, July 5. Cable indulged ia a
one and fit Fourth of July celebration
this year. The procession formed at the
Congregational church and marched to
the depot, consisting first of a carriaare
with the speakers of the day, the goddess
of Liberty surrounded by thirty-eight
little girls representing the different
states; third, a carriage containing tbe in
coming states. These were followed by
floats representing every business bouse
in town grocery, hardware, blacksmith,
shoemaker, furniture, plasterer, dairy,
meat market, miners at work, barber,
restaurant, jeweler, farm implements.
Then came the most laughable rig ever
seen in a procession here. It consisted
of a laVge dry goods box mounted on an
old rickety wagon. The box was covered
with tbe regulation colors, red, white and
blue, and in large letters was printed on
the sides, "Jack in this box," "Uncle
Tom's Cabin." "Helen's Baby." On the
dashboard were the words, "Peck's Bad
Boy." A large bell was mounted
on the back of the wagon and
youngster dressed as an old lady
with the words on her back. "Old
Lady Peck." Whenever the old lady
tapped the bell Jack sprung up in the
box. One look at Jack was enough to
put a person into convulsions; then
came the reirular western cowbov. fol
lowed by a band of Indians and bums
mers, all mounted.
The procession marched to tbe ground",
where after a prayer by the Rev. J. F
Hill, tbe president of the dav. Rev J.
Smith made a few well selected remarks;
tuen came music by tbe Cable quartette
ana also ty tbe Cable Light Uuard band.

A Krmarkable Kmraptt.
The Moline Ditpatch has it that Sat
urday while one of Hayes Wright's hired
men was plowing corn in Rural, ram
commenced falling. The man crawled
under one of the horses for shelter. Soon
getting tired of his position, he got up
and walked away from the team a rod or
so. His escape seems providential, as
before he could tnrn round to see the
animals again, a bolt of lightning struck
the team, knooking both horses down
